Hey did, anyone... get around to playing this in the entirety, was it any good?

Its a bargain bin SaGa game. It has the basics and a number of staples that a real SaGa has, but its incredibly barebones.

Sorry to be resurrecting 2 random threads at once... but yeah basically I was looking at 3DS games I missed, and this and Legacy came out (well and Langrisser).

I'm not sure about Langrisser, but like with Legacy, did anyone play this (non Demo) how was it, if so?

Got super bored of my 9% run of Metroid: Zero Mission, so I decided to blow through the packed-in Metroid NES port instead (its really amusing to see just how methodically the game can be dismantled; swing for Morph Ball, beeline it for the Bombs while snagging the Missile Pack, double back while picking up the Ice and Long Beams and Varia Suit, head to Norfair for an Energy Tank, a bunch of Missile Packs, Hi-Jump Boots, Screw Attack and finally Wave Beam, continue on down to Norfair Depths/Ridley to job Ridley (since he's piss easy due to his blind spot), double back to Brinstar Depths/Kraid, take the express elevator down to Kraid's chambers and pump him full of Wave Beam and Screw Attack, heal up with the Energy Tank and march on towards Tourian and ice a bunch of Metroids, Rinkas, Zebites and Mother Brain, then escape the Time Bomb Set! and get your swimsuit natch).

I don't think you'll find many people sing the praises of NES metroid...

Legits, I would just straight-up chug marinara if it was good marina.

TIL a new way to see Great Tits besides bugging my wife all the time.

Couldn't help it.

Will consider deleting.

GOOGLE SUGGESTED... RELATED IMAGES SAYS THE DARNDEST THINGS.

I know this wasn't part of the podcast per se, but I just wanted to say that interview with Yuzo Koshiro that RPGfan did was pretty awesome IMO.... he did some of the OSTs for games I liked growing up so that was cool to see... totally random I know... I think it was like a 1 year and a half ago or something but it's one thing that brought me to this site.

Sorry to ressurect this thingy long after the fact, went back to this game randomly today....

I don't know I think both Fates and some of the other FEs like Radiant Dawn etc... more recent ones... are about as good or better than some of those super early FEs, based on my impression of them.

Ok this is my technical understanding...

The PS4 is basically like a harder top speed but isn't integrated as tightly as the Vita, the PS4 is basically just reflecting, a big collapse of Sony in  a large strain of the PC-ification of the gaming industry. It's essentially just a PC, and so it doesn't do what consoles have done more effectively than the PC which is to have integrated components.

The Vita does have this, in addition, it has the OLED screen and other novelties that make it technologically superior IMO, not in all respects, a clock speed is a clock speed, ram is ram, and all that, but it seems to be the way it was built it was like a panzer tank but with guns pointing every direction, and not necessarily fewer weapons all pointing in the right direction.

As far as I can tell, load times, basics of functions, on and off, all those elements are faster on the Vita, furthermore, games that take full advantage of the OLED screen look pretty amazing.

On the PS4 side, yes, there are a handful of interesting PS4 exclusives, but I think those cater primarily to established demographics and such. Maybe FFXV is the first FF for someone, but it certainly isn't my first FF, and consequently I would just be there to enjoy something I already kind of know and like, not necessarily to go deeper into it.

Moreover, at this point, almost every other major console exclusive is being ported to the PC, including as I mentioned in the other thread, Nier 2, etc.

So in short, The PS4 and Xbone are simply, machine wise, and also with respect to the games, have become part of the larger PC umbrella, there isn't much to be gained from owning one aside from, as I said, support for particular franchises (which is fine and dandy).

Moreover, those franchises tend to be more established, and while of course can be quite fun, I don't think for instance, something like FFXV is quite as unique or interesting an RPG series as perhaps a Ragnarock Odyssey (not really a Monster Hunter fan, myself)

But the Vita, I think alludes to the point when gaming is about making unique technological progress and stuff, so consequently, I'd say it's in much better shape.

Anyway, I don't think any hardcore Sony or RPG fan can go wrong, it's basically like Genesis 2.0, or Dreamcast 3.0, it's the good system that really is good that never catches on with the greater group because raisins.

Now, as to getting one now, it's a bit tricker, as you say, the support has dropped off, but I've heard that's because they feel 3rd parties are adequately supporting the system.

I think the reason for the Vita's struggles is, quite simply, the 3DS. That is to say, most people have just adopted the 3DS over the Vita, so it's not really, mobile, or whatever that's causing the problems, it's just that the 3DS has been a super impressive system. '

Final edit: I think ultimately the true answer is simply... 3ds... lol

I guess would be, but fortunately imaginary popcorn is low in calories.

I really wish I could draw better, would make a slimmed down genderbent samwell, complete with book and gleeful expression.

You just a peach. And by that, I mean you are designed to confuse and bewilder me ("mommy, why does that tree have, like, 50 different butts growing out of it?")

Er, I daresay in 2016 the ability to see great tits is so abundant and accessible in various ways....

I know, those bird-watchers blogs are just amazing!

Well I have a highly active imagination so I'm often barraged by imagery in response to mere text, basically.

I'm kind of just highly active in general, to be honest, sometimes people will just tell me I am exhausting ahaheheh... oh...

The other part is I have dozens of incredibly outrageous opinions that I nonetheless stick to... for instance I'm kind of on a "soda diet" where I don't drink water instead only flavored drinks of various kinds, but also eat a lot less regular food.

It actually seems to work really well, pretty sure uh, will only be reprimanded for this kind of thing (what about your liver!) sort of deal.

I honestly get more filled up drinking like cream soda than I do eating a lot of the time, I still eat of course, but yeah I haven't had regular water in like 2 months...

This kind of happened suddenly, there wasn't any one thing that precipitated it, I was just doing the Wendys thing and realized wow I'm like barely drinking any water... and then I was like.. hm... feel fine though.

I think we have too hard distinctions between like food, solid, liquid, whatever, sauce in a dish is basically like a liquid? But like penne sauce is "food" in that consequence even though it's not that different from maybe soda or something.

I think the "drink 8 glasses of water" thing was intended to try to balance solids and liquids, to a degree.

Besides I think I get the equivalent of "8 glasses of water" now, moreso than people who tried to achieve that just by drinking water, because I mean as well know it doesn't get more bland or tasteless than water.

So people have been trying "eat what you want" diets for ages, well how about a "drink what you want?" diet, eh?

Well the other side is perhaps I don't drink alcohol, and most people's diet does consist of that so....
